A black shroud of magical energy surrounds your hands. Beneath the shroud your hands look withered and aged, like uncared-for ancient leather on the verge of crumbling to dust.

Your successful melee touch attack deals 1 point of Strength damage and 1 point of Constitution damage per two caster levels to the target (maximum of 10 points each). If you score a critical hit, the subject takes ability drain instead, but the effect is not doubled.
